Another Democrat for Bush?

Senator Joe Lieberman, who would make a much better Democratic candidate than John Kerry, was campaigning for Kerry in Florida last week. Here's what he said:

"We are dealing with a president who's had a record of strong, consistent support for Israel. You can't say otherwise. And I think John Kerry, to reassure people, has to himself be explicit" about Israel rather than rely on surrogates, the Connecticut senator said in surprising remarks near Delray Beach.

Lieberman, an Orthodox Jew who was the 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee, said he's urged that Kerry speak out more on Israel because "only John Kerry can eliminate those doubts," the Palm Beach Post reported. . . . Lieberman made his remarks while stumping for Kerry.

Come away from the dark side, Senator Lieberman. There's room in the GOP's "Big Tent" for you!

(Wouldn't that be a coup, though? Al Gore's running mate leaving the Democratic Party? Doubt it would ever happen, but . . . I can dream, can't I?)
